Near New - No sign of reading; 8.03 X 5.75 X 0.24 inches; Mead is an alcoholic drink made by fermenting honey and water with yeast. A glass of lightly chilled mead on a summer's evening is a splendid delight. And yet, of all the crafts of mankind, mead-making is certainly one of the oldest. It is likely that mead was made even before the wheel was invented as stone-age cave paintings depict the collection of honey from bee colonies. The drink made from honey became a staple of Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, Medieval and Renaissance Britain. This practical book will inspire you to take up this admirable craft. It includes chapters on honey selection, mead-making techniques, and forty-two recipes for mead, melomel (using honey mixed with fruit juice) , pyment (honey mixed with grapes) , hippocras (honey mixed with grapes and herbs) , metheglin (spiced medicinal mead) , cyser (honey mixed with apples) and other honey drinks.
